Venus and Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn
I'm a bit intrigued on the retrograde actions/results of both VeR and MeR in Capricorn at the same time, though only briefly, and curious if others have thought about it. Laura Barat recently posted a YT video on the VE retrograde beginning in a few days, 19 December. ME will be going retrograde, 14 January @ 10 degrees of Aquarius and re-enters Capricorn on 25 January. VE and ME will both be retrograde 3 days before VE goes direct again. They make contact 3 times, while at least one is retrograde.
Other factors to note; VE goes retrograde at 26 Cap on PL. Mars will be in Cap (EX) starting one day before ME, and starved when ME re-enters Cap.
How this affects one person or another is a curiosity to me, if either ME or VE are identity factors such as AK or Lagna Lord and the bhava that the confident and more powerful planets pass through. For instance someone I am close to has a Gemini Lagna, ME is the AK and this will all be happening in the 8th house. If this is happening in a difficult house, would one anticipate a difficulty, even though brought about by way of a benefic? When talking VE, in a friends sign, supported by a friend I am hoping this means a desirable outcome for most. I am reminded of Ernst example of VE sometimes bringing misfortune, such as a sexual encounter that results in an STD. Possible example: that one might have a car accident, but get a new/better car from an unfortunate circumstance?
Just thought I'd put this out there and see if anyone has considered how this might affect them. As for me this is all happening in my 7th, house and transiting over my natal Moon.
Is Ve/Me imp planets for you ?
I'l let you know impact in 3 months ? :). I am Cap lagna; Ve AK; Me DK.
Ya, with these transitions I have already seen a lot of activities. By no means they are done yet. I'll probably have an even more tranformed life by the time they are done. It's been a good experience though. I haven't felt any pain tbh. (Some things have given way) to give way for better experiences.
I just checked out the video, I am Sag lagna, so Venus is transiting my 2nd, so a reward of the 4th! lol woohoo, lets see what happens. What I am most interested in though is the conjunction of Pluto and Venus (GK). The conjunction of Pluto and Venus on Dec 11th at 25 degrees is exactly square my AK Mo/Ketu both @ 25 degrees Libra. And the Retro conjunction will happen again on Dec 25th, 25 degrees again, exact square. Internally lots of stress and confusion around relationships for me right now, and emotional unease. Hopefully I will gain some ease and clarity after the 25th Dec.
I'm a Virgo Lagna, so Venus is retrograde while transiting my 5th house. I'm hoping this means a reward from the 7th? We'll see. Interestingly enough, it's squaring my natal Venus @ 26 degrees Libra in my 2nd house (Sun and Ketu are in Libra too). Venus is my Amatyakaraka. I think Ernst' new course on YT fits pretty well with this Venus in 5th motif in my case. I've had a lot of epiphanies and shifts about past relationships and patterns so far. But I'm trying to take notes like a good student (Venus) Ha! still lots of videos to go. Mercury will go retrograde while transiting in my 6th house of Aquarius and then will go direct in my 5th. I'm hoping that has to do with getting some new clients.
